Come and See
Children's Liturgy of the Word
Sundays at 9 a.m. Mass
“Having the opportunity to attend Children's Liturgy of the Word makes going to Mass a completely different experience for our family! Even us parents that accompany the kids benefit from hearing the readings and Gospel in a simplified way (not to mention being able to focus better due to having to redirect our children less). I appreciate the enthusiasm of the children as they respond to prompts and questions during the interactive reflection. I'm so thankful that St. Austin has introduced this invaluable ministry. It is bound to positively influence our youngest Catholics by giving them a format to participate more actively in liturgy and worship.”
From parishioner Shannon Donahue
